Find yourself working in local government planning for a rural community, and unsure how to navigate issues around agricultural activities and land-use?

Have a client that owns farmland and who wants to subdivide a portion for residential development, but not sure where to start?

New to the province and want to familiarize yourself with the legislative framework between land-use planning and agriculture?

This webinar will provide a brief overview of the purpose and functions of the Provincial Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), as well as a review of recent changes to the Agricultural Land Commission Act and the Agricultural Land Reserve Use, Subdivision, and Procedure Regulation, and the impacts these changes have or have not had on application considerations and land use planning in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR).

Kim Grout MCIP, RPP will also talk about her new role as CEO and the ALC's direction moving forward following recent announcements from the Provincial Government of increased funding for the ALC to better support the regional panel decision-making process, the planning work that the ALC pursues in partnership with local governments, and the compliance and enforcement work that the ALC does across the province.
